In this age of legislative term limits, Upper Arlington not only needs fiscally responsible leadership in the Ohio House, but also a new representative that can hit the ground running.

I urge my fellow Republicans to vote for Jason Rafeld on May 4. I have known Rafeld for many years and know that he is the most experienced candidate in the primary race for the 24th House Ohio House District.

Rafeld knows how state government works. While working in two state departments, he helped improve government efficiency and curtail wasteful spending. From day one he will bring his government experience to the Ohio House.

Rafeld, as a practicing attorney in private practice, understands the impact of legislation. He will exercise restraint and good legal judgment in crafting state laws and public policy. His legal experience is badly needed in the Ohio House.

Rafeld served our country in the United States Navy. His military background demonstrates his commitment to serving the people.

Raised in Upper Arlington, Rafeld is the only candidate in the primary with the necessary experience and history of commitment to the community required to be an effective legislator. I strongly recommend that Republicans vote for Jason Rafeld on May 4.
